I have them, though not on an SS, for daily use and maybe if it's absolutely pouring for an autox. I'm super happy with them. They're very much a "performance" all-season in that the sidewall is...

In short, if you want to have a car that is good at the track, 1LE. If you want to build a track car, SS, maybe with a couple of choice options.

I think a spacer will add more wear on bearings and the such as compared to the equivalent wheel offset. It's adding more weight to the equation, and moving the center of weight on the wheel out....

Welcome. When I first started looking for a Camaro I wanted the LTG 1LE, but finding them used was next to impossible, and I'm not that gung ho about buying new. Depreciation and all. Ended up buying...

Ultimately it's up to the shop and if they can get it on, but there's a good chance the bead won't set. That's a good bit of bulge with not a lot of sidewall. It likely won't look quite right either.

I tried running Assetto Corsa on my work laptop. Didn't go so well. A computer with decent graphics capabilities is all but required for modern titles.

You definitely don't need to spend all that on things. I bought a PC off craigslist for $450 that runs most games at 1080p, 60+ FPS. Most racing games more like 90+ FPS. I've had a Logitech G920 for...

2) 35 is a good starting point, but you can probably go lower. There is a lot more width to spread out the weight. Maybe try 32, that's what my car calls...

It's always odd to me how most people seem to think that those who buy the base model Camaros and Mustangs are doing it instead of the V8 models. I'm sure there are many like that, but for me, I...

I'm sure with enough money and time, you could get the Mag ride to go on and function like it does for the cars it came on. I personally would put that money elsewhere though.

One thing to note on this, if the tires have directional tread, don't drive in the rain with a tire facing the wrong direction. It will likely go very badly for you. In the dry, it is probably OK. I...

I've found that keeping up with having a recent coat of wax makes a huge difference in how easily rubber/cone marks come off. Doesn't do you much good right now, but for the future.

I want to say some cars are legal in street classes with their factory tires that are below 200 tw. I've never been affected by it, so I can't for sure though.

I can tell you that there is an argument to be made that the turbo 1LE is the best Camaro for Autox. It's hard for the V8s to make up for the extra weight over the front axel.

Though any Camaro...

My 2.0t has a totally different balance from the SS 1LE, but it is a very well balanced car with square 305s. A couple of...
